SAFEGOLD FAQs

ABOUT GOLD

SafeGold is an organised and transparent method of buying 24 carat gold in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. SafeGold is neither a financial product nor a deposit but a method of purchasing gold for your personal needs. You can buy the gold under this plan according to your wish and have complete freedom to seek physical delivery of gold anytime and on as many occasions as you want. Since it is not physically possible to deliver a fractional quantity of gold, minimum quantity for which the delivery is proposed to be made has been kept as low as 1 gram and in multiples of 1 gram. Gold will be purchased on your behalf on the basis of clear funds being made available by you for the transaction. Gold in grams up to 4 decimal places shall be credited to your account.

SafeGold has entered into a relationship with IDBI Trusteeship Services Limited to act as a Security Trustee for all our customers.

The gold associated with the accumulations in your account is separate from the other assets of the SafeGold. IDBI Trusteeship Services Limited, an independent trustee, acts for and on your behalf. The gold purchased by the Company associated with the accumulations in your accounts is held with the Custodian. When you ask for delivery, the requisite quantity of gold will be removed from the Custodian and delivered to you through a reputed courier service. Since the Security Trustee has a charge over the gold, any unlikely adverse event happening to Company will not affect the gold associated with the accumulations in your account. Further, the title of the gold clearly rests with you and the physical gold stored with the Custodian on account of SafeGold customers is not an asset of SafeGold in any way.
You are not obligated to make any fixed or periodic payments.
